“We have a job! »

For his first on the Clermont bench, Christophe Urios suffered defeat this Saturday in Lyon (34-14). For the former manager of Bordeaux-Bègles, his team will have to work a lot to bounce back into the Top 14.

In bad shape this season in the Top 14, the appointment of Christophe Urios has not yet had the desired effect in Clermont. Indeed, after the dismissal of Jono Gibbes and the arrival of the former strongman of the Union Bordeaux-Bègles, the Auvergnats were beaten this Saturday in Lyon (34-14), during the 16th day of the Top 14 At Matmut Stadium, ASM threw themselves into the mouth of LOU and remains at the bottom of the table in the standings (13th), six points from the red zone. Inevitably, the former hooker was not very happy with this new bad result. ” We have work! We have to go back to work on Monday and it will take time. I still saw some interesting things today (Saturday), positive feedback from players, forms of play too, even if there are still things to do: we need to clarify things in our attacking game,” Urios first explained.

“We are readable” regrets Urios

“I saw a good spirit. But Lyon are better than us and deserve to win the game. We are not confident, we are not sure of our strengths. We have the impression that we can attack two hours before scoring or even create imbalances, when the opponent scores easily. We are readable, subsequently declared the manager of Clermont, in remarks collected by L’Equipe. We have settled some points, we need to settle others, we don’t have enough animations, we are too much on one against a frontal, we have to put a little uncertainty in the defense. This is the type of a team that needs to toughen up to find stronger collective benchmarks. “Next week at the Marcel-Michellin stadium, the Urios team will not have the right to make mistakes against Castres (February 4 at 5 p.m.), facing another formation in the hard this season.
